The tattoo artist involved in the issue was also arrested.


  1. dump guy why would you haha

  2. God only knows why dey do such dumb tings. How I see it it’s to fit in a gangster look. Ugly Ugly Ugly all dem tats.

  3. Next to Life, vision is our most important gift. It would seem that this belief is missing from the minds a lot of Black youth because once again some of these foolish youth have taken up the new trend of tattooing their Eyeballs. It’s obvious that they have total disregard for the health of their Eyes. It is also further evidence that they are ruled by vanity and hold no value for their lives in general.

    Life seeks directions of growth like Tree roots bore through the soil in search of nourishment for the Tree. If there is no nourishment to be found in a particular area of soil the Tree will halt the growth of that Root and send its energy in another direction, leaving that Root to die. A Ghetto is not classified as a dead Root unless the people in it have no regard for their lives.

    Vanity grows in the absence of real ambition. Ambition is individually generated but is fostered, nourished, and reinforced by family, culture, as well as tradition. Knowing that, the youth alone cannot be blamed. They are merely left to their own device by the broken cultures in which they exist. Because of this they fall victim to all the Vanity (self satisfying things) that is captured by their senses.

    Wisdom is Knowledge divided by Understanding. We are in the information age and the youth are bombarded by endless information in which they could use to improve their lives but without the ability to properly understand the information no Wisdom is ever gained. Professor MOmOH of the Dohgon University of Thought is on a mission to rescue the minds of Black youth and teach them how to use their minds as our ANKHchestors once did in building the Pyramids.

    Black people, it’s time to leave the foolish vanities of Tattooing your Eyeballsalone and come home to the Dohgon.

  4. I also think it should be illegal. Sometimes you have to protect young people from themselves. 🙂

  5. These kids are just desperate for attention and sometimes they go to extremes. I feel sorry for them because they feel they have to go to extremes to stand out from the crowd. And to that, stand out, they take serious risks. But then that’s young people. They always think they are invincible and know it all, right? I hope the kid has learned his lesson and I hope other young kids learn from his experience as well. We don’t know the long term effects of tattooing the eyeball. We’ll know in the future if these young individuals have problems with their sight as they get older.

  6. Does any one know who did ni–a is really it just looks like he’s seeking a bit of attention that wasn’t given to him as a child -_- Smh some ppl just die for the attention really not to sound like a hatter but its the truth 😛
